You have to stop Backup Exec

You have to stop Backup Exec services in order to delete or rename the CatError.log file.

So your recommended course of action would be:

  1. Stop Backup Exec services via Backup Exec console - Configuration and Settings - Backup Exec Services.
  2. Delete or rename the CatError.log file.
  3. Start Backup Exec services again. This will create a new CatError.log file, initially empty.
  4. Watch the CatError.log file to see whether it starts growing again.
  5. If it does, open a support call.

You may also have a peek at its content while it is still small enough to open.
